Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Daniel 4:37


4:37 Now I praise - Thus can the Lord make the stoutest hearts to stoop, and do him homage. This doxology proceeds from his heart. Are truth - God is truth essentially: he is the rule and standard of truth, his words are truth, his ways are truth, and they are judgment: he is wise, and hath dealt justly with me for my pride, and in very faithfulness hath afflicted me, and in very tenderness hath restored me; I do, and ever shall adore him for it. Able to abase - As he hath declared upon me, in stupendous changes, which I proclaim to all the world. He had a just controversy with me, and I have no ground to quarrel with him, but to give him glory by this confession. What authority had any one to say, That this man was no convert? We can no more doubt of his salvation than of Solomon's.

    Like so many of us that have been blessed and refuse to acknowledge the poor, abused, and oppressed. Your pride will make the Lord a base you. If your truly a child of God!

    God took control of The Kings Life from the beginning by putting Daniel in His court. The Chaldeans were the smartest around in that day and spoke Armenian; later on, some of them were Christianized by the disciples and their followers, these believers are very persecuted even to this day.
    The King put out a decree that the subjects of His Northern Kingdom would know the Mosiac law.

    We must remember that God is in control. The Lord is able and will bring us down, if we fell to recognize Him. He has is a mighty God!

    Praise God, who releases understanding as he pleases, that king must have gone what we call today as mental illness. God decides what is good for us, God decides what to do with us to bring us closer to him, closer to each other and humble us together for His glory. To bring back the ultimate glory to Himself. The king Nebuchadnezzar is a perfect example, thank God who keeps us safe.
  • Thelma
    THIS SCRIPTURE HELP ME TO EXAMINE MY SELF AND TO HELP OTHERS TO EXAMINE THERE SELF ,TO KNOW WHO GOD IS AND WE ART TO HUMBLE OUR SELF ,AND TO ALLOWED GOD TO EXAULT US IN EVERY WAY.
  • Seven Trumpets
    I looked up "Esdras" in Wikipedia, since I didn't want to spend the time actually reading in it; and what I read, I didn't like. It apparently has some so-called visions of Ezra, and him asking questions of God; which in my opinion don't match up to the kind of man of God Ezra really was. For example; how could he think that misery and punishment is unjust for a people who obstinately refuse God?
